    When and how do I book character dining for my Disney Cruise? Thanks.

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Shannon!

    I am thrilled that you will be cruising with Captain Mickey in just a few short months!  As your countdown gets smaller I am sure the excitement is growing in your house.  My family is also cruising this May and our countdown chain is starting to get a little shorter!

    Some of the best moments on a Disney Cruise are the magical memories made when meeting our favorite Disney characters.  The Character Breakfast is offered on select sailings of seven nights or longer.  To book a reservation for this event (and others, like the Princess Gathering), go to My Cruise Activities when your Advance Booking Window opens.  You can look at each day of your itinerary under Onboard Activities for dates and times of the breakfast.

    If you do not see this ticketed event available when booking your cruise activities, head to Guest Services (Deck 3, Midship) when you arrive onboard to check for any additional available tickets.  

    There are also many other opportunities to meet with all the characters while onboard.  Be sure to review your Personal Navigator newsletter left in your stateroom each night or your Disney Cruise Line Navigator App for locations and times to see all your favorites!  I always carry my camera with me as we move throughout the ship, as you never know who may be waiting around the corner.  My son had a very funny moment I was able to capture while he was dressed as Captain Hook and we ran into Mr. Smee near the Port Adventures desk!

    Have fun making magical memories, Shannon!  Bon voyage!  Angie
